New Order - Primitive Notion Lyrics




It doesn't take a lot to confuse me
I'm not aware of the passing of time
And I'd like to say to those who accuse me
Could you do it while you looked in my eye

If you hold on primitive notion
And if you think you'd like to try
You can drink this magic potion
And you can do it 'til the day that you the day that you die

I've done it before and I'll do it again
A judgement of life that I'll burn 'til the end
How can it be that we're so far apart
I want it to be like it did at the start

I'm doing my best to confound? you
Your behaviour is so volatile
Not even a zoo would impound you
Don't look at me with your criticle smile

Well I've been driving in the wrong gear
It's been a long and lonely ride
It's been winter for a whole year
But you couldn't hurt me if you tried

I've done it before and I'll do it again
Charged with a life that'll burn 'til the end
How can it be that we're so far apart
I want it to be like it did at the start

I've done it before and I'll do it again
A judgement of life that I'll burn 'til the end
How can it be that we're so far apart
I want it to be like it did at the start

I've got a message that I need to send
It's coming to you straight from a friend
I wanted to see what's inside my heart
I wanted to be like it was in the start

    It doesn't take a lot to confuse me
    I'm not aware of the passing of time
    And I'd like to say to those who accuse me
    Could you do it while you looked in my eye

    If you hold on primitive notion
    And if you think you'd like to try
    You can drink this magic potion
    And you can do it 'til the day that you the day that you die

    I've done it before and I'll do it again
    A judgement of life that I'll burn 'til the end
    How can it be that we're so far apart
    I want it to be like it did at the start

    I'm doing my best to confound? you
    Your behaviour is so volatile
    Not even a zoo would impound you
    Don't look at me with your criticle smile

    Well I've been driving in the wrong gear
    It's been a long and lonely ride
    It's been winter for a whole year
    But you couldn't hurt me if you tried

    I've done it before and I'll do it again
    Charged with a life that'll burn 'til the end
    How can it be that we're so far apart
    I want it to be like it did at the start

    I've done it before and I'll do it again
    A judgement of life that I'll burn 'til the end
    How can it be that we're so far apart
    I want it to be like it did at the start

    I've got a message that I need to send
    It's coming to you straight from a friend
    I wanted to see what's inside my heart
    I wanted to be like it was in the start

    amazing

  3. Kolos Farkhasiu

    This is GREAT! CONGRATULATIONS!

  4. pyrtwist

    Nice one Nico!

  5. elodiedazur

    excellent clip !

  6. Bobby Gasoline

    Driving music. Fantastic. As always.

  7. chabbb

    magic bass line

  8. mreoski

    I WISH THEY'D SHOW THE DRUMMER PLAYING THAT KILLER BEAT a bit more clearly. That would be an intense workout playing that non-stop without messing up! Any drummers out there got the balls to play it all the way through on video? Post it!

  9. Act4

    Nice work on the video :). This is my favorite track on "Get Ready" and one of my favorite New Order tracks.

  10. littlekasino

    @AwesomeCoasters unsurprisingly so, considering how new order are the surviving members of joy division, wouldn't you think? but i disagree, ian curtis was too dark for this kind of tune, this is totally NO, not JD.

  11. Joshua

    dude! i thought this was the official video! kept trying to find the pictures of the lead singer and was thinking DAMNNN, how'd he age SO MUCH in only a decade! superb job

  12. truthserum2000

    Great job with this clip.

  13. MrCarliso1

    Myself and my 9 year old just playing this to death in my car every morning on the way to school. Class. The video matches the track so well. Nice job.

  14. d3p3ch3mod3

    Totally does justice to the song. I've watched plenty of mediocre art school music videos & this is better than a lot of official videos. well done

  15. bassmanjoe

    This song is fantastic, some of the best NO stuff i have ever heard.

  16. Orbi

    Job well done on the video, thumbs up!

  17. Bob Morse

    great tune - but the video is miserable

  18. MattSid86

    Truly HQ video! I love it <3

  19. SanchiV

    great video!

  20. ady10001

    Woooaaaahhh enthusiasm overload!!! Nice one.

  21. ady10001

    They don't appear in any of their good videos. They don't have huge egos - that is the real New Order.

  22. Kerlimann

    I've been a New Order fan since '83 and this is imo the best New Order song EVER!!! Why was it not a single???? You gotta love Peter Hook's bass on this one...goose bumps!

  23. Ev Karim

    Great Job!

    It does seems like the official video.

    Algún fan de méxico por acá? xD

  24. Andres Mercado Trump

    muy buen sonido , la mezcla y todo . Excelente!

  25. MrDeer

    great song

  26. Grandpaconway

    good job on your project mate - went well with a great song - not easy to do.

  27. degaulle30

    What a fucking sound.

  28. Ron Anthony Quinn

    They have always maintained their identity. They are simply brilliant and this song lends to their legacy.

  29. Pili Cedillo

    Wonderful video! Superb!
